Conscious of this trend, Hood has invested heavily in research to develop new materials and production techniques, and by rethinking design so sails not only ensure optimum performance but are also more durable and easy to use.
Vektron® was first presented at the London Boat Show in 1995 and from this time onward the number of sails produced for superyachts has increased considerably.
Our sails speak for themselves and continue to prove their merits day after day.
We have an increasing number of customers who cruise the oceans and thanks to our experience we are able to provide them with strong, lightweight, fast and durable sails.
And thanks to the worldwide network of Hood Sailmakers, we can guarantee our customers top-level service.
In recent years the boom in sailing schools and charter agencies has opened up a new segment with needs that differ from those of normal cruise enthusiasts.
Hood recognised this and began to differentiate its production techniques for sails targeted for sailing schools and charter use, again establishing itself as leader in terms of quality for these specific products.
Users were quick to recognise that this competitive move led to considerable savings thanks to the greater durability of these sails.
